77 Boa Drum [trailer]
On September 7, Thrill Jockey is releasing a DVD documenting Boredoms’ 77-drummer Boa Drum performance, which took place on 7/7/2007 at 7:07 PM at the Empire-Fulton Ferry State Park in Brooklyn, NY (TMT News). In addition to the actual performance, the DVD also includes rehearsal footage, interviews, and clips from the series finale of The Hills. I’m fucking psyched.
While I’m bummed that The Hill is over with, I can seek solace in the fact that Cosmogramma (TMT Review) still, like Brody, kicks ass. Here’s the latest video off the album.

Nina Nastasia’s got a new album out, Outlaster, released last month on FatCat. Recorded by
producer longtime collaborator Steve Albini (Shellac, Big Black, Jessica Hopper), the album may or may not be about my attempts to “outlast” my girlfriend’s previous boyfriend in bed. Listening to “Moves Away,” a short but sweet track from Outlaster, my guess is probably not. But I did still want all of you to know that I’m actually outlasing my girlfriend’s previous boyfriend in bed. Take that, Steve.
Maximum Balloon, the project of TV On The Radio’s Dave Sitek, has released a video for “Tiger,” featuring Aku from Dragons of Zynth. Sitek’s debut is released August 24 on DGC/Interscope Records, home to this compilation.
